The World’s Oldest Diet
Many people are finding health benefits by abandoning their fear of fats and enjoying great tasting and nutrient-rich foods like eggs, bacon, avocados, cheese, meats and unlimited vegetables. This way of eating is enjoying resurgence as it is much like the way our hunter-gatherer ancestors naturally ate. Basically it is a high fat, moderate protein, and low carb diet. On a more fundamental level it is our oldest weight maintenance diet.

Our Detox Program begins JANUARY 10th!
In preparation for our detox, participants are beginning what we call. 'pretox'. One week to ten days before starting any detox, we encourage you to start taking steps toward a successful experience. We suggest you wean yourself off from caffeine, alcohol, sugar, and gluten to avoid headaches during the program.
If you've overindulged this holiday season, especially on fatty foods, you may need an extra boost to help jump start your detox. Swing by the office for a supplement called LV-GB Complex which supports the normal processing and elimination of toxins while assisting liver and gallbladder function.
We would also encourage you to prepare yourself mentally and physically with at least a short walk each day.
Many people think of alcohol or drug rehab when they think of detox, often associated with in-patient care or hospitalization. This is detoxification in the extreme.
Detox is our birthright; a process that our bodies constantly perform. It is how we rid ourselves of those nasty chemicals that are in our environment. Without it we would soon succumb to toxic overload. While your liver and kidneys do most of the work, your skin, lungs, and intestines also do their share.
How do we accumulate toxins on the first place? Our industry produces thousands of different chemicals, most of which have not been tested for safety. Our air, water, food and skin-care products are full of chemicals that are foreign to our bodily systems. Luckily we are like self-cleaning ovens and are able to excrete most of these poisons as fast as we take them in.
